Gia Francesca Lopez won’t need to look at a baby album to find out about her first days. She can watch replays of the episodes of “Mario Lopez: Saved By The Baby” from the series debuting November 1st on VH1.
“From the hottest parties to the dirtiest diapers, VH1 is giving viewers a fly-on-wall look into the life of one of Hollywood’s former sexiest bachelors as he makes the transition to super dad,” says the networks pitch for the new reality series.
Lopez, who hosts “Extra” and “America’s Best Dance Crew” met dancer Courtney Mazza two years ago while performing in a “Chorus Line” on Broadway. They’ve been a couple ever since and their daughter was born September 11th. Cameras have been rolling throughout the transition from dating to co-parenting. “From sonograms and baby proofing to vacations with the in-laws, Mario and Courtney will begin this exciting and sometimes overwhelming new chapter in their lives with America watching,” VH1 declared.
“Mario Lopez: Saved By The Baby” is executive produced by Cris Abrego for 51 Minds Entertainment LLC, an Endemol Company. Ben Samek and Rabih Gholam also executive produce for the series and the company, while Julia Silverton serves as co-executive producer for the show. Mario Lopez is also Executive Producer along with Mark Schulman at 3 Arts. Lisa Gregorisch-Dempsey, Senior Executive Producer of EXTRA (which is produced by Telepictures Productions), will also serve as a Consulting Producer. Jeff Olde, Jill Holmes, and Kristen Kelly are executive producers for VH1.
